Summer 2019 Newsletter: Thank You for Your Support of the School!

July 24, 2019

The Advancement team is happy to share that Mater Christi exceeded its annual fund goal by 12.5%, and raised $225,000 in support of the school. We are so grateful to the parents and community members who contributed to the annual fund. These funds go directly to support the operating budget and allows the school to make strategic investments, including a modest increase in teacher salaries,  the new Cloud Library Catalog System, and additional staffing. We are so grateful for your support — thank you!

Led by the Parent Event/Engagement Committee and many, many members of our active and invested PTO, this year’s Spring Benefit produced just over $40,000 in funds for the school. It was a lovely evening at Burlington Country Club, enjoyed by parents, board members, community members, faculty, and the Sisters of Mercy. We thank everyone who sponsored, donated, volunteered, and attended this signature event.

We are also pleased to share that the Sisters of Mercy doubled their support of the school for this coming academic year 2019-2020 in the form of two grants to support tuition assistance, one for school tuition and the other to help families who receive tuition assistance to afford after-school care for their children while they work. Mater Christi school is committed to making a Mater Christi School education affordable at many income levels.
